This blended Scotch, ’matured in deep-charred old oak casks features intensely smoky aromas and flavors, although honey sweetness and mellow almond peek through. Golden in hue, with a silky feel..Kara Newman, September/2013

Flavor profile is equally fruity and grainy, highlighting the dry breakfast cereal aspect as well as the figs, dates. Concludes long, rich, a touch smoky, floral..March/2015

 

Blended to break the rules, Double Black boasts an edgy confidence in flavor that separates it from its balanced relative, Johnnie Walker Black Label. It is not simply a darker version of Black Label, for it cannot be defined by color alone. Nevertheless, the two blends are intrinsically linked. As any discriminating drinker can see, they share DNA - in their smoky nose, unmistakable spice and slight tones of dried fruit. But the similarities end there. With this blend, the exclusive taste trumps all. It's no wonder whisky critics and aficionados have snatched up the limited number of bottles produced, making it even more elusive and mysterious. But rest assured, the "mischievous brother" won't be gone for long - just remember that flavor of this intensity takes time and great care to craft.
